Default Swordfishing Sat Night

Had plans to fish the Pensacola Juniors and PBGFC Intraclub tourney on Saturday. Went to get the boat ready and both motors wouldn't stay running. Long story short ended up replacing both fuel supply pumps and a whole host of other parts all day on Saturday. At last minute decided to go ahead and fun fish Sat night and Sunday. Left perdido pass Saturday night around 8PM. It was a little bumpy and we took our time. Made it finally to the Spur around midnight. Put the first line out and immediately hook up. I mean as soon as I put the rod in the holder I saw the disco light come to the surface. 10 minutes later we put a 70lb sword in the boat. Move the boat back to the same spot and put another line out. As I'm attached the ballon to the rod the line is yanked out of my hand. Craig gets on the rod and the hook pulls. He reels in the line to check the bait and low and behold a huge sword follows the squid all the way to the boat. Freaking out...we are trying desperately to hook the fish. It seem like ten minutes but we hooked the fish on 5 or 6 occassion only to have the hook pull but this fish was on a mission. Finally we get a solid hook up and Craig settles in to battle. After a few hours we pull a massive sword over the gunnels we think will go 200. Stoked and with no space we decided to head in. This was the best sword action I've ever experienced!

You were rewarded for your "Boat Blues" for spending most of the day getting her ready to ride. I think that swork will not disappoint the 200LB mark!!!
